Academy Day

Students attend five one-hour lessons every day according to the times below. 

All students are encouraged to attend Breakfast Club and they are able to have free toast and hot drinks and to use computer facilities and supervised study areas to engage in their independent learning, homework and coursework.

Also, the Learning Zone is open at the start and the end of the Academy day for a quiet place to do their homework.

Extra-curricular clubs include a variety of sports, music, drama, performance and general interest clubs.

In addition, some students are able to have one to one tuition during either Breakfast Club or Homework club depending on their age and ability level.

 

The Timing of the School Day


Following earlier discussion, we have now decided to change our school day from 1st September 2017. Below you can see a model of how it will look, but here are some of the main changes listed for you:

  • All students will start and finish formal lessons at the same time.
  • There will be a breakfast club open for any students to visit from 8:00am every school day. This will continue to offer free toast and hot drinks for those who wish it.
  • All students MUST be in school by 8.25 each day, with lessons or tutor starting at 8.30am for everyone. Monday and Friday start with Tutor Time to allow other activities within the Academy.
  • Lessons will end for all students at 2.50 pm every day.
  • There will be after school clubs or revision sessions running every day from Tuesday to Friday. These are called OWn Learning Sessions or OWLS for short.
  • OWLS will be voluntary for any students however attendance will earn them additional rewards.
  • We would expect GCSE students to come to OWLS to get revision support for their examinations. Attendance at OWLS will earn them rewards for our Year 10 awards and Year 11 Graduation evenings.
  • Each OWL will be 45 minutes long and there will be two each day on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, with one on Friday. Some clubs might take up two OWLS in one go when the activity takes longer than 45 minutes.
  • OWLS run from 2.55 pm until 3.40 pm or from 3.45 pm to 4.30 pm.
  • Form tutors will sometimes invite individual members of their tutor groups for short ten-minute one-to-one meetings at 8.20am (before school) on Tuesdays or Thursdays to see how they are doing.
